The Greenfield Review Press
The Greenfield Review Press published its first book, a collection of inmate poems smuggled out of Soledad Prison, in 1971. Since then, our press has been a home for a great diversity of voices, including but not limited to African, African American, Arab American, Asian American, American Indian, Caribbean and Chicano poets and fiction writers. We were a multicultural publisher before the term gained wide currency, although we define "multicultural" as inclusive of all cultures not just those neglected in the past. We have offered a number of imprints - from the Ithaca House poetry series to the traditional folk tales of Bowman Books to our audio series Goodmind Records. The Frank Waters Memorial Series, bears the name of one of the West's greatest novelists and features first books of prose by American Indian writers. more info
